Leavenworth man sentenced on child porn charge

A Leavenworth man will spend more than 10 years in prison after being convicted of receiving and distributing child pornography.

36-year-old Pedro Zamora pleaded guilty to one count of receipt and distribution of child porn.

In his plea, he admitted that investigators found 127 videos and 1,900 images containing child pornography on a computer in his home.

He used a file sharing program to collect and distribute the images.

Zamora told investigators he began searching for child pornography on the internet when he was in middle school.

He was also ordered to pay $6,500 in restitution.
